"You stole filthy lucre from the filthy rich who stole it from honest people. There is no higher crime in the United States."

I love this judge. Can I buy him a beer?

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: "You stole filthy lucre from the filthy rich who stole it from honest people. There is no higher crime in the United States."


While 99% true, he did screw a few middle class people as well.

But you are mostly spot on. Look at Jordan Belfort.

Stole from the wrong people, Bernie. And you should have known that from the get-go...

That's a Federal Court.

You know what is gonna happen next, right?

I wouldn't hate him so much if he only screwed the rich. But he did screw good regular folk, too, like the local Plumbers and Pipe Fitters union. Blue collar, hard working people who busted their ass their whole adult lives for the hope not of being yacht rich, but just being comfortable, bills paid, maybe a little travel, then a spot in the not-horrible home for their end of life care. They lost it all because of that evil bastard. I despise him for that.  I hope he suffers the whole time he is dying.

He screwed so many people, I have to think prison is the safest place for him.
 
2020-06-05 12:51:59 AM  
He was a piece of sh*t and deserves the jail time, but I'm mad that he ended up being the ONLY scapegoat of the crash when a LOT of very rich people fraudulently sold mortgages, then used our own government to abscond with bailout money and left many people homeless and unemployed.

Wait, Madoff want's out? What happened to that bravado when he was bragging that they treat him like a king a prison and it's pretty much just a resort for rich people and that everyone he's incarcerated with respects and admires him? Is he no longer being treated like a king or did he really think he was getting out again?

At least he still has the Ramen market cornered in prison. So he's got that going for him. Which is nice

That all changed the day they told him it was his turn in the barrel.

He's probably lucky he didn't get released as I would bet there's more than one person not in prison who wants to get their pound of flesh from him.

Yes, bunker clown is going to pardon everyone, and after January 21st they'll be shipped off to Nuremberg and wished they'd received only a 150 year sentence.
 
2020-06-05 2:39:21 AM  
No problem..We'll transfer him from Club Fed to a SuperMax prison where he'll meet some True Americans®.

You know who else wants out? Luka Magnotta, the murdering cannibal. And the worst is that his freaking mother tried to get him out.

Not everyone who was a Madoff investor was filthy rich, there were quite a few normal people who lost their entire life savings, and several pension funds seriously harmed.

True, but those people don't matter to the "justice" system.

Geez, both his kids are dead. One suicide, the other cancer. And he's asking to be let out, as if he's suffered enough. Just farking sad.

I was remodeling Madoff's Seattle mansion when he flew the coop. The contractor got farked, but he still had to pay my boss who was subcontracting.

/It was some town north of Seattle actually, don't remember the name.
//... And he didn't even finish re-shingling!
///Not obscure.

New a guy at work who thought he would take the advice of the owners and lost his retirement, had to work another 10 years and refinance his home. Not rich but just a white collar programmer.

Stupid Bernie. That'll teach you to steal from other rich people. You could have taken a clue from Goldman-Sachs and stole billions from the proles. Not only would you not have seen one day inside a cell, they might have let you make tax policy so you and your billionaire buddies could get to keep shiatloads more of your booty.

Stupid Bernie.

He should've had his family start telling everyone publicly that he's being released, before the judge has a chance to rule.  That way, the judge has to release him, or look bad.  That worked for Kwame Kilpatrick.

/I don't know if this got covered on Fark or not
//His family and supporters are who told the media that Kwame was getting released early
 
2020-06-05 8:53:31 AM  
Is that the judicial way of saying "fark you" to someone?
 
2020-06-05 9:07:11 AM  
Look Bernie, the entire point was for you to die in prison. If it's death by the rona, so be it

So, he should have stolen hundreds of millions from all the rich poor people?  Asking for a friend of mine, Willie Sutton.

Between rich and poor?  Bernie stole from rich people.  They would riot with the poor people.  It's the trust fund kids that might get confused.

godwin5: No problem..We'll transfer him from Club Fed to a SuperMax prison where he'll meet some True Americans®.


Uh, no. A real supermax has the fine luxury that everyone is basically kept in permanent solitary confinement. This is easily "cruel and unusual punishment", and expensive as all hell to maintain.

That is weird as can be, because I double checked before sending it, and I didn't even have that open.

This should be better.
